Former NFL Viking Chris Kluwe, who served as punter for eight years and was released in May 2013, published a scathing piece in Deadspin today, alleging his release from the Minnesota team was likely due to his outspoken support of same-sex marriage, an issue on which he publicly, repeatedly expressed his views, starting in the summer 2012, complete with media interviews and published writings. The headline? I Was An NFL Player Before I Was Fired By Two Cowards and a Bigot. Dont hold back, Chris: tell us how you really feel.
The Vikings issued a statement in response today, noting: "Any notion that Chris was released from our football team due to his stance on marriage equality is entirely inaccurate and inconsistent with team policy. Chris was released strictly based on his football performance." Adding credence to this is Kluwes lackluster prospects following his release: after sigining with the Oakland Raiders he was soon thereafter cut during training camp, and, despite tryouts with several teams afterward, has received no offer.
Kluwes column clocks in at, oh, around 100,000 words. Allow me to spare you and instead guide you through with excerpts:
1) Kluwe opens his column by noting that his recollections are driven from notes he jotted down at the time of the April 2013 draft, which he says he did in case it is necessary to recall what happened as he is doing today in this article, seven months later.
As a lawyer who has worked on corporate defense against employee wrongful termination claims, I can attest that an employee taking notes this way is often (not always but often) a telltale of someone who is either strangely paranoid, or, more likely, was laying the groundwork…

The fact that the dumbass Vikings called it ‘marriage equality’ tells you all you need to know. Sorry, Kluwe You just suck.
Please... NFL Owners are WHORES of the worst kind...
Look at all the degenerate behavior they condone and celebrate...
Hey Kluwe... Get a clue... If you could average a net +40, the Vikings wouldn’t care where you put your
This clown gotta be in the closet and is scared to come out. No straight man would be a tool for homosexual marriage. Probably made a deal with the Gaystapo to keep his sexual orientation sealed but he’ll be their shill.
As long as Glenn Beck fights shoulder to shoulder with him against ‘heterofascism’, he’s ok
As far as I'm concerned, the same goes for advocating for homo marriage. Where Klueless is a faggot or not, his going to bat for them puts him on their team. Sames goes for that queerbait Adam Levine.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
The real story here is that the Raiders cut Kluwe because he was white. In the name of diversity, they kept the black punter and cut the white one. Kluwe should sue the Raiders.
Shut up and go away.
If you were any good you would be playing.....
Look at that NBA guy, what's his name that averaged 1.1 goals per game, coming out as "gay", when he was as useless as boar tits.
Now if Peyton Manning were cut from the Broncos and blamed it on homophobia, I might listen.
But Peyton is not gay, and keeps his yapper shut about politics, regardless.
“The fact that the dumbass Vikings called it marriage equality tells you all you need to know”
So the vikings really think a man wanting to “marry” another man is about equality? Thats just sick.
Minnesota’s institutions are dominated by left wing radicals.
Punter? I thought he was a “catcher?”
Donates to Republicans. Certainly a rare breed for an NFL player.
